Hello, I recently developed an interest in the engineering physics program. The best engineering physics program in Canada is at UBC and U of T: take a look at the courses http://www.engphys.ubc.ca/courses/course-tables/ [Broken] All the courses sound very interesting to me, and it definitely sounds like the perfect program for me, plus it's the only engineering physics coop program in Canada. The only reason that I'm reluctant is because of employment opportunities. My ultimate goal is an R&D position, it seems as an engineering physics degree would be best for me. How are the job prospects for this degree? Is it too broad (jack of all trades) that employers won't hire you? I am debating between electrical and mechanical engineering, which engineering physics encompasses (plus mechatronics and computer engineering). Would it be better to go into an old fashioned field (electrical or mechanical) for R&D? Salary does not matter, I'm sure any job title with engineer in it pays decent enough. Will I be able to apply for electrical engineering or mechanical engineering specific jobs? I've done a job search, there are very few jobs that specially demand an engineering physics degree, so I'm a little worried. It's just that this degree sounds the most interesting, it's broad and you can specialize in so many things such as microelectronics, photonics, plasma physics, optics and laser, mechatronics, etc. The best of both worlds. I'd like to read people's opinions on this degree. Thanks!
